The Houston Rockets, with just six games to go on the regular season schedule, face the Denver Nuggets for the second straight night.
The Houston Rockets are looking to redeem their Sunday night loss to the Denver Nuggets with Monday rematch at the Toyota Center as both teams battle for postseason position at the tail end of the season.
Denver put in on Houston pretty hard in the second half of the Sunday game, despite the Rockets holding the lead going into halftime. For both the Nuggets and Rockets, every game left on the regular season schedule is like a playoff game, with Denver currently holding the seventh seed and Houston down to the eighth seed due to its three-game losing skid.
After Monday's rematch with Nuggets, the Rockets have only five games left to solidify a spot in the playoffs and two of those games are against the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat - the two teams that played in last year's championship game and both playoff teams this season.
Here is look at the game schedule and television information for the Rockets vs. Nuggets game:
Date/Time: Monday, April 16, 7 p.m. CDT
TV: Fox Sports Houston
Radio: 610 AM, 850 AM
